Madison Communities Breaks Ground on Madison Canton, a Luxury Multifamily Community in Metro Atlanta

Thursday, November 30th, 2023

Madison Communities, a leading developer of apartment projects throughout the Sunbelt, has broken ground on Madison Canton, a garden-style multifamily community in metro Atlanta. 

The prime location is near historic Downtown Canton and its restaurants, bars and local retailers. Approximately 40 miles north of Atlanta, the project site at the intersection of Marietta Road and Jackie Moore Lane offers convenient access to Highway 20 and I-575, which connect to everything Georgia's capital city has to offer.

Madison Canton will have 252 units anchored by market-leading amenities, including a contemporary clubhouse and fitness center with a cyber lounge and flexible workspaces. Outdoor amenities include a resort-style pool and deck with grilling stations, a dog park, a dog wash and pickleball courts.

"We are excited to break ground on Madison Canton, a project that reflects our commitment to creating exceptional living spaces in rapidly growing communities," said Ryan Hanks, Founder and CEO, Madison Communities. "Canton's dynamic growth and vibrant community make it an ideal location for our luxury garden-style multifamily community. We look forward to delivering a unique living experience that combines modern amenities with the charm of Canton."

Unit interiors will feature chef-inspired kitchens with granite countertops and backsplashes, walk-in closets, full-sized washers and dryers and private outdoor patios and balconies. The project, delivered by BenCo Construction, an affiliate of Madison Capital Group, is anticipated to complete its first units in the second quarter of 2025.

The project is also close to three major retail centers – Prominence Point, Canton Marketplace and Riverstone Plaza – and Lake Allatoona, 12,000-acre lake with more 270 miles of shoreline. In addition to fine dining and shopping, residents will have nearby access to water sports, public parks and miles of walking trails.

The city of Canton, the seat of Cherokee County, has experienced remarkable growth, boasting a 43.6% increase in population over the past decade. Fueled by robust job and income growth, major local employers include Northside Hospital Cherokee, Inalfa Roof Systems, Pilgrim's Pride Corporation, Chart Industries, Inc. and Piolax Corporation. 

Madison Communities, an affiliate of Madison Capital Group, is headquartered in Charlotte, N.C. and has a strong presence throughout the Sunbelt region with offices in Nashville, Orlando, Atlanta, Dallas and Charleston. The company specializes in developing and managing suburban garden apartment projects, contributing to the growth and vitality of communities across the Southeast. For more information, visit
